Gary Allen's In the Chips: Dipping Into the History of the Super Bowl Favorite: "Recently, Jan Petersen wrote in to ask, "When did dips for chips first become popular?" With the Super Bowl just around the corner, we're interested in delving into the history of these gridiron staples. Jan's question may sound like a version of the old conundrum about chickens and eggs — at least as regarding which came first — but in this case there is an answer." I'd recommend it even if it weren't so timely, it's such a fantastic piece of writing.
